Why I Write For Hubpages
My Reason For Writing
I have one purpose for writing. I write only to serve others. This is my passion. This is why I write. There are many reasons to write for hubpages and we all have our own. For some, it may be a hobby and for others it may be to stretch their talent as a writer. I have met others who write only to make money. This is sad. While making extra income from writing is always exciting, and I regularly do, It's not my primary reason and never will be.
Learning From Other Fine Writers on Hubpages
Nothing excites me more than to learn something new. With every hub I read by one of Hubpages many remarkable writers, I learn and grow in leaps and bounds. My joy expands, jumping to another level of learning. I know I can grow with each hub I read when I have the right attitude. It's all up to me.
If I remain open, humble and teachable, I will continue to excel. If I close myself off to a particular hub, well, that's my loss.
So while I'm on the subject I would like to give a special thanks to all of you who have brought me knowledge and helped me to grow as a writer.
The comments I've received since I've been a writer here on hubpages have inspired and encouraged me. It's through inspiration that I do my best work.

One of the perks of belonging to the "hubpage family" are the new friends that unexpectedly come your way . Establishing a following by taking the time to read and comment on other hubs has introduced me to some very special and wonderful people. I participate in forums, read nominated hubs as well as new ones and every now and then offer an answer posted in the question and answer forum.
I have learned about topics of interest that I would have otherwise not even considered reading about. Because I am a member of the Hubpages community, I have an opportunity to increase my knowledge and expand my interests as never before. And I don't even have to leave my computer to do this. What a blessing that is!

Increasing your writing skills
When I review some of my earlier hubs I can truly see how far I've come as a writer. Boy am I grateful for the chance to re-write and edit some of those articles. It's a great feeling to immediately see what needs to be changed to make the earlier hub a better read.
There's just no way I could have learned how to do this without the Hubpage Community. With the help of The Learning Center, Forums and stellar hubs offered by other writers, anyone can improve their writing skills.
I've learned the importance of 2 rules for increasing my own writing skills:
- Write with passion about what you know.
- Write something, even just a line, every day.

On a Personal Note
Hubpages has also provided me with a way to deal with the loss of my son.
I have learned that as we go through the grieving process of separation from those we love, that we can gain strength by being involved in writing. A writer uses his own private emotions to create poetry and articles of interest.
With every hub I read I take away new information that is useful for me in some way. I have become a better writer and person.
So I thank you Hubpages for giving me so much. I'm happy to say that I am more fulfilled and educated. I can even be a contributor in my small way. Hubpages has brought out the best in me and it will in you too.
